Morality Proceeds Economy, So Vote For Morality

Most people vote based on how they think a candidate will affect the economy and their industry, but keep in mind morality proceeds economy.

Very few people in America understand the history of America anymore and even fewer understand why we have become the most prosperous nation that the world has even seen.  

Others are wary to blend money and religion together, but they are intrinsically related in every culture throughout the world.   

America was founded by a Christian people who created a system of government that was designed for a Christian people to live one nation under God.  Some argue that our government system is our strength that has led us to great prosperity, but that line of reasoning in more likely wishful thinking.  The truth maybe hard to believe for those that don’t believe in God, but nevertheless it’s still the truth.

As we vote for our next president tomorrow, voters are most concern with one issue – the economy.   The focus is on the short-term, while the economic crisis we are facing is looking more and more like a long-term problem.

In the long run, the moral climate of a Christian nation will eventually determine its financial climate.  America became the most prosperous nation because of it’s moral climate and obedience to God, just as God has blessed other nations throughout history.  This rule is not determined by a nation’s government structure or legal system or military might. 

The rules of God's economy have been given to nations that have choosen to worship the God of the Bibile. Yet today many think that God will continue blessing our nation financially while it’s moral climate deteriorates. God said IF we obey His commandments, then His blessings will rest upon us and our nation.

There are many examples of God blessing a nation throughout the Bible, but I would like to look at the one in Deuteronomy 28.

(1) “If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands … You will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country … You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out. The Lord will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. … You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. ”

(15) “However, if you do not obey the Lord your God and do not carefully follow all his commands … all these curses will come upon you and overtake you. … You will sow much seed in the field but you will harvest little.”

You see, morality proceeds economy.  We cannot vote for economy without regard for morality, because our economy will follow our morality.  This process doesn’t happen over night, but in the long run, if we want to turn around the economy, we need to turn around the morality of our nation. 

So when you vote, vote with morality as your priority – not economy.  God cannot be mocked.  He cannot allow a nation that has a Christian heritage to continue to reject Gods commandments without an economic collapse.  If He did, He would not be holding true to His word. God would be a liar.

America Alone

In this, his first major book, Mark Steyn--probably the most widely read, and wittiest, columnist in the English-speaking world--takes on the great poison of the twenty-first century: the anti-Americanism that fuels both Old Europe and radical Islam. America, Steyn argues, will have to stand alone. The world will be divided between America and the rest; and for our sake America had better win.

Gold: The Once and Future Money

Governments and central bankers around the world today unanimously agree on the desirability of stable money, ever more so after some monetary disaster has reduced yet another economy to smoking ruins. Lewis shows how gold provides the stability needed to foster greater prosperity and productivity throughout the world. He offers an insightful look at money in all its forms, from the seventh century B.C. to the present day, explaining in straightforward layman’s terms the effects of inflation, deflation, and floating currencies along with their effect on prices, wages, taxes, and debt.

Business for the Glory of God

When students ask, “How can I serve God with my life?” they don’t often hear the answer, “Go into business”. But that is exactly what this book is claiming. Grudem says, “human desires to increase the production of goods and services are not in themselves greedy or materialistic or evil. Rather, such desires to be productive represent God-given desires to dominion over the earth as He created us to do.” Grudem also explains that significant temptations accompany all productions of goods and services, which we need to resist. This is not a ‘Health and Wealth’ gospel, but a biblical look at the goodness of business.

Crash Proof

Peter Schiff has predicted the economic hardship more accurately then any other economist in the world in this book. Everything from the housing crash to the credit crunch to the stock market. Peter has a plan to help you servive the crash. Peter explains why the Wall Street investment firms are still trying to sell you stocks, and was the house prices are likely to continue to decline for years to come.
